Sharp UB30 4K Series
The UB30 series is Sharp's most affordable 4K TV for 2015/early 2016 features a few upgrades worth looking into. Compared to the UE30 series, these lack a backlit local dimming and the Android TV platform. Picture performance is strong for a budget oriented TV.

Sharp Aquos UD1 4K Series
This 4K entry from Sharp comes in a 70 inch size. It has recieved a THX 4K certification so you know 4K content will look amazing. It's got all of the other bells and whistels of the top tier Sharps for the year with a DuoBass speaker system.
Sharp Aquos UQ17 Series
The UQ17 series is the top of the line for Sharp's non-4K LED TVs in 2014. You get all sorts of picture quality upgrades, and the ability to accept a 4K signal on a 1080p screen. The super thin profile and bezels really make this an attractive option.

Sharp Aquos SQ15 Series
The SQ15 series fills the mid-level LED TV space for Sharp in 2014. Here we see some of the premium picture quality features left off in order to keep the value strong. The SQ15 series does feature the Quattron+ picture technology for displaying 4K content on a 1080p display.
Sharp LC-70SQ15U, Sharp LC-60SQ15U
Sharp Aquos EQ10 Series
The EQ10 series falls on the lower end of the Sharp lineup for 2014. Quattron+ picture technology has been dropped down to just Quattron, meaning no 4K signals are accepted. The redesigned smart TV features and a fast 240hz refresh rate are the big draws here.

Sharp Aquos LE650 Series
The LE650 series scales things back even further than the 657 series. These lack the 240Hz panels and 3D playback to drive the price down even further. Built in wifi and the Smart TV features are still present making this an excellent value set.

2013 Sharp LCD and LED Televisions
Sharp Aquos LE857 Series
This top of the line series from Sharp comes in 3 huge sizes. It's got all the best features out there until you start looking at 4K and OLED TVs. The LE857 series also has an updated appearance making it a nice addition to any home theater.

Sharp Aquos LE844 Series
Sharp continues to push very large LED back lit LCD televisions. One area where they differ from other manufacturers is that they are offering models with mid-tier features in massive sizes like this 80" LED television. It has the Quattron 4 color panel, Smart TV online features and active 3D technology.
Sharp Aquos LE757 Series
The LE757 series is the second from the top in Sharps's 2013/2014 lineup. It has features like the Quattron screen, a 240Hz panel, an attractive slim aluminum design, 3D playback, and a dual core processor for speeding up smart TV functions.

Sharp Aquos LE750 Series
The LE750 series presents a slight variation on the 757 series for a reduced cost. All of the features like the Quattron screen, a 240Hz panel, an attractive slim aluminum design, and a dual core processor are present. Active 3D playback is the only thing missing. There is no 80 inch size like the LE757 series has, but the feature set is good.

Sharp Aquos LE657 Series
The LE657 series scales things back a bit for the 3rd tier. This one is a value centric set, so a lot of the advanced features have been left out. Namely the 240Hz refresh rate panel and the Quattron screen are missing. Active 3D playback and Smart TV options are still included on this value set.
Sharp LC-90LE657U, Sharp LC-70LE657U, Sharp LC-60LE657U
Sharp Aquos LE550 Series
The LE550U series is a pretty big step down from the 650U seires above it. Active 3D playback and Smart TV features have been completely done away with for these full HD resolution value LED TVs.

Sharp Aquos LE450U Series
This year, the 450U series takes over the budget duties in Sharp's LED TV lineup. The 32 inch size is the only one available at this time. It's a 60Hz 720p TV that can be had for less than $300. There is a lot of competition in this section of the TV market, see if this Sharp entry will fit the need.
2012 Sharp LCD & LED Televisions
Sharp Aquos LE945 Series
The 945 series Sharp LED televisions are the flagship models from Sharp in 2012, they have the Quattron quad pixel technology that adds yellow to the normal red, green and blue pixels. This exponentially increases the amount of colors the 945 can display, resulting in a more realistic picture. The 945 also has full Smart TV connectivity and active 3D.
Sharp LC-70LE945U, Sharp LC-60LE945U
Sharp Aquos LE847U Series
The LE847U series actually the same in features as the LE844U except in two different sizes and without the full array LED backlighting. It falls just below the top of the line LE945U series in features with Quattron 4 pixel technology. These two large TVs have edge-lit LED backlighting rather than full array local dimming. The Smart Central TV Internet options are available.
Sharp LC-70LE847U, Sharp LC-60LE847U
Sharp Aquos LE745U Series
This series is the mid range tier for Sharp in 2012. It falls under the LE847U series in the Sharp line up and omits the Quattron and 240Hz specifications of that series while maintaining a value oriented price tag in very large sized edge lit LED backlit LCD TVs.

Sharp Aquos LE640U Series
The Sharp LE640U series contains many good features for 2012 but with a more modest plastic framing bezel that looks like its brushed metal even though it's not. It has a unique bottom and top beveling and the edge lit LED backlighting allows for a super thin depth for these large TVs. These are not Quattron 4 color pixel TVs.
Sharp LC-70LE640U, Sharp LC-60LE640U
Sharp Aquos LE540U Series
Sharp does not produce many moderate to small sized LED backlit LCD Televisions but this series contains two models. The feature set limits the pixel colors to RGB 3 - or Red, Green, Blue without the Quattron. This series does however contain the 120Hz upgrade which we have found workable in that past as it upgrades the TVs processing speed while not adding any adverse effects. Overall, this is a value oriented series equivalent to the LE640U series in feature set but in smaller sizes.
Sharp LC-46LE540U, Sharp LC-42LE540U
Sharp Aquos LE440U Series
This small size LED backlit LCD TV from Sharp is actually the same in features as the larger screen size LE540U Series with no Quattron 4th color associated with it. It will yield a very good picture quality for a small LED-LCD TV.
